] I'm glad you said that! I think she had a lot of 'Romantic Depth'.I think it helps very much explain her fascination with the gothic, too.
I'm glad you're glad, Caroline :-) But why "fascination" - it seems to me that a lot of "Romantic" influences impinged on her only for her to reject them... that's why she is so difficult to place generically (see below)... Of course, now we get into the difference between Gothic and Romantic and how we get from one to the other... I throw this out casually for you to pick up on at your will ;-)

] Is that what makes Henry Crawford attractive?
It seems to me that what makes Henry Crawford so attractive is that he is the first pleasant young man who appears on the scene for Catherine Morland... what I like about him is that he has a delicious dry sense of humour, but it doesn't stop him appreciating her simple good nature...
